Forgive Me, And I Will Be Forever Indebted

Written by: Haley Bresnahan


We have been together for a while now.

My life with you is so happy and blissful.

I feel more fulfilled now than I ever have,

Simply knowing that you are all mine.


And still, I feel I must beg your forgiveness for the way I have acted in the past.

I hope you will find it in your heart of hearts to forgive me, so here it goes.

I’m sorry for all the times that I have taken your presence for granted.

I apologize for simply assuming you would always be there to properly support me.

I understand if that felt you feeling scarred.


I’m sorry for fantasizing about other types that were so completely different from you.

I apologize for playing around with those types in selfish and desperate experimentation.

I understand if that pained you to watch with your own eyes.


I apologize for refusing to give you exactly what you wanted, exactly when you wanted it.

I understand if that made you feel ignored.


I’m sorry for ridiculing you in front of my friends and family.

I wish I could take back the hateful words I used to describe you whenever I was frustrated.

I understand that those were things that never should have left my mouth and entered your ears.


I’m sorry that I didn’t listen to my mother when she told me you were perfect for me.

I shouldn’t have scoffed and rolled my eyes.

The truth is, when we were younger I wasn’t mature enough yet to truly love you the way you deserved.

For I thought love was something fickle, and paper-thin.

 I had no idea I’d find love in you years later, and I never thought I would be able to see the ways in which you had always been there for me.


You’ve given me one-sided unconditional love for years, and have patiently waited for me to notice.

And I finally have.


So in case it was unclear before, I just wanted to say

I love you with all of OUR heart.


You are my body, after all.

And I’m pretty sure we’re together in this for the long run.
